Again I ask, when all of this fear mongering is for NOT, “Will all of you DOOM Sayers, post about how wrong you were with the same fervor ?” I will be glad to do the same if you are correct, which is only fair..

WOW! The way the OP makes this sound I should be running for Sonora right about now...lol btw I live right in the middle of this so called disastrous rain DOOM!!! And yes it is raining and yes it looks like it will rain for the next four to five days here but this is normal for this time of year. NO DOOM!!! Here folks Trust me...

BTW to the poster who has family moving up here the only thing they should be concerned about is having a JOB when they get here as there is no WORK!!! anywhere in site up here. That is the real DOOM for this location not from some heavy rain.

This will be for 6 straight days! Tell me that in some days ok?
 Quoting: Luisport


Be happy to; I have lived here right in the middle between SF, and SAC for many many years and we get this every year just about...this is not anything out of the norm here..you are fear mongering for no reason.

Anyone who has lived here long enough will tell you because we live in a low valley between two mountain ranges the rain falls like this every year; it does not take some pineapple express DOOM guy to blow a normal thing out of proportion. bsflag bsflagbsflag here is 3 of them as you do not live here and are really full of yourself...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28170526


Luis is just trying to be helpful.

Second, we DON'T get storms like this "every year". In fact, need I remind you that we recently came off of a drought?

Please, let's not generalize here. We wait to see what happens and if what he posted gets people to be prepared, then that is a good thing.

The state's water agency has ALREADY called for a flood watch as a of today, so don't tell me this happens every year because they don't issue flood warnings, across the board, every year.

Several storms will roll through the north state during the next several days, though forecasters on Tuesday said the heaviest rain is expected to fall Thursday, likely causing flooded streets as winds gust up to 35 mph.

"If we're going to get a huge amount of water, (Redding's storm drain) system will not handle it," said John Stacher, supervisor of Redding's Storm Drain Utility. "Most systems are designed to handle a 10- or 25-year event. It seems like this is going to be a 100-year event."

This is what downtown Nashville looked like after 3 days of steady rain. It flooded all over the city and did billions of damage. Didn't get a lot of media attention because the Gulf well blew a couple of days later.

 Quoting: IssueX


Good advice - and here's to hoping people in the area take warnings to heart rather than thinking they know better and becoming statistics. Flooding is no joke - particularly when it's widespread enough to prevent emergency rescuers from getting to stranded people.

I think this thing is going to be pretty big when you consider the amount of cumulative precip they are forecasting, and I think it is silly to discount warnings because it often storms in California. They are calling it an 'atmospheric river.' Better safe than sorry, IMO...

You know you're in trouble when the CNN helicopter is recording the speedboats going down the highway within your sights - and if you had a medical emergency there would be no way to get out of your home, even if you could call for help.

Big storms in Cali frequently flood out roads in Northern California, especially in Marin and Sonoma, and in the Sacramento delta.

The idiots who are scorning these warnings are just idiots. Ignore them.

Although we rarely have losses of life, the property damage is horrendous, especially around west Sonoma where the old drain fields have been filled in and turned into quick-profit "developments". The old city, from the 19th century, Guerneville, now floods regularly from even minor storms. Sacramento is very fragile, as are low parts of San Rafael and Novato, which shouldn't have been built in the first place. My coworker once had ocean fish over a foot long swimming through her San Rafael living room. She was ruined financially afterwards when her home was condemned but a high mortgage (yes, as Sandy victims are learning, you still must pay even when the house is gone) and new rent were beyond her and her husbands' combined income ability to pay.

So hope all you guys in California paid attention and have lots of fresh potable water, first aid supplies, and groceries.

Many times the floods knock out power for weeks, and all the refrigerated and frozen food is used or lost, so anyone in those areas needs a non-refrigerated back-up food supply. Canned goods do fine, as it's usually only a couple weeks.

Right now, we just had a break from a couple weeks of rain to the north, and it's starting up again tonight. Oregon/Washington and inland are under the gun again. Got to go make last-minute preparations. Could be months before some areas of our property can be accessed again, without hours of snow plowing.
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie—
deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent,

Nope - Rocklin is about 20 minutes away from Sac. If the traffic is bad on I-80, then closer to 30-45 minutes.

It's an hour away from Stockton, however....

Re: Northwest, N. Calif., Braces For More Rain and Snow!!!
I am a fourth generation Californian and older than dirt and this is not normal rainfall as is being described for northern California. Yes, 1997, 1995, 1986, 1983, 1977/78, 1964, 1958(spring),1955 (pilots said it looked as if they were flying over the ocean regarding the Sacramento Valley(very large valley), and 1951. Really heavy rainy seasons. Major flooding. So, while it is not normal, it has occured.

That's as far back as I can recall.

The average rainfall for Sacramento is 18.52inches. If we get the 9 to 12 inches of rain that 'they' say we might in this week that is huge.

I live up the hill from there and wse average a little over 36inches per year so we will see what happens???
 Quoting: Mickeyblue 9806228


Mickey if you live here than you also remember the big wind and rain storm a few years ago that came through the valley and ripped trees out of the ground, downed power lines, flooded most of Sac and Lodi to Modesto area...and that storm was way worse than what we have now...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28170526


What storm are you referring to? Lodi hasn't had a flood since the 90's. Trees ripped out of the ground, yes, but only a few in town.

I lived in the N/W for years - got tired of the rain & snow - summers r great.

There were years that would have the 100 year storms, looks like u r in one. I also remember the drouths. For now I will stick with the desert S/W, we have had 3-1/2" of rain so far this year, 7" is the average.
